Special Status of Goods:
Samples/ Sales representatives/ Give-away
If you give away samples to a company with a VAT number you will not have to pay any VAT.
With a give-away to a sales representatives or privat individuals you will have to pay the VAT in the Netherlands.
Warranty/ repair/ Replacements
When your company deals with warranty, repair or replacements shipment you must inform us before we can go ahead with fiscal representation. With these conditions we can only offer GFR. If you have these kind of shipments please contact us and we can explain this procedure more extended.
Goods that have to be destroyed
Sometimes goods have to be destroyed while they are located in the Netherlands, for instance, past their expiration date. Goods which have to be destroyed after import with fiscal representation have to be destroyed by an official company with a proof after destruction.
This means we will have to hire a by the Dutch Tax Authorities approved company.
Goods which have already been delivered to the customer and which do not meet the requirements and have to be destroyed have to be returned to Neele- Vat in the Netherlands. After the return in the Warehouse these goods will have to be destroyed as mentioned above.
This is not allowed with fiscal representation.
There are possibilities like the use of a temporarily import license with the import declaration but that will be handled by the customs department of Neele-Vat and is no part of the fiscal representation options. Please request more information if you have an import shipment for a Trade show.
Transfer of own goods to the Netherlands (no intention to sell, own usage)
When you import your goods into the Netherlands with no intention to sell them to another company we can offer you GFR. You will receive your own Dutch VAT number and your goods will be custom cleared under this number.
Your goods can be stored in the Netherlands until you decide to sell them or to export them again after use. You can also put your goods to use in the Netherlands like an Datacenter.
If you want to store your goods in another country then the Netherlands you will need to have a VAT number in that other country.

Selling your goods
There is a perfect solution for selling your goods to any European customer. Due to fiscal representation you can sell the goods without charging VAT.
There are some requirements while using fiscal representation. See this link for information about incoterms, sales invoices and transfer of goods.
Shipments done as a sample shipment, a give-away shipment or goods delivered for free for a Sales representative can be shipped without paying Dutch VAT for a maximum.
Delivery to Amazon, Groupon or other companies and warehouses with no transfer of ownership on the moment of the transfer of the goods are no problem fur us at all.
For the Tax Law this transaction is called a “distance sale”. When a company imports goods and customs clears them in the Netherlands and sells these goods to a private person.
